Garden Lane Alzheimers Care
Alzheimer ’s disease is an irreversible condition caused by the deterioration of the brain. There are some conditions that may look like Alzheimer’s disease which can in fact be reversible if treated. It is important when memory loss is present to see a physician and have a thorough physical to rule out any issues that may be treatable.
At this time there is no cure for Alzheimer’s however there are steps that can be taken to make the process as gentle as possible for those with the disease and their families. Yellow Brick House is committed to staying current with the latest therapeutic research and care techniques for exceptional resident care. Our toolbox includes distract, redirect, and therapeutic lying. That may sound un-professional, but the goal is to join residents in their reality, not try to correct or re-orient them. Since dementia is a brain disease that the resident has no control over, we never want to make a resident unsuccessful or incorrect.
